Conscious blood flow (CBF) is about enhancing our physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing through the pleasurable and mindful exercising of your body’s internal arteries and organs. This is brought about by becoming attuned to your natural abilities to just “be” and by learning to sense your interior body, and then being able to consciously direct and control the flow of your blood. And, one can orgasm many organs, hence the book’s title of Organ Orgasms. Despite the catchy (but true) title, this book is about the mystery and joy of experiencing one’s existence in a unique way (an aspect of being), and about discovering our bodies and nourishing them so we can experience our lives in the healthiest and longest way possible (an aspect of wellbeing). Thus, Organ Orgasms is really about being and wellbeing. It will enable people (no matter what stage they are at in life) to see more clearly into themselves, and then use the book as a guide in developing their own personal plan for living more joyously and healthily. Organ Orgasms is not formulaic or like other self-help books, but it will help people learn how to take care of themselves better and get them re-thinking about their purpose in life and ensure their wellbeing. The book is written for the lay reader and includes over 150 extremely useful illustrations. Yet, it has also been cleverly crafted to meet the needs of the scholarly reader by the use of endnotes and appendices, which provide a stunning amount of scientific evidence for how the body, brain and mind work to make CBF possible.

From slaughter to sanctuary, The Whales' Journey describes the experiences of the humpback whales as they travel between the cold Antarctic and the warm tropical seas off northern Australia in what is one of the longest migrations in the animal world. It is also the story of human impact on humpback whale populations, which were decimated almost to extinction during the first sixty years of the twentieth century. Humpback whales are now protected by a fabric of regulations, sanctuaries, treaties and ultimately by human concern for them and their environment. This passionate, carefully researched and richly illustrated book brings to life the story of whaling in Australia, along with the associated tale of the long, sometimes fruitful and sometimes vexed relationship between scientists and whalers. The Whales' Journey is a message of hope and warning. As the fight to protect the earth's environments and species continues, the sparing of the humpback whale is an engaging tale of success and possibilities. As we constantly search for new resources to exploit, we need look no further than the humpback whale to see how simple it is to avoid the destruction of a whole species.

It is a story about male infertility combined with the female's fertility declined with the age, which lead the partners to proceed with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as the only option. In today's western world one in every six couples face fertility problems and this story could become a reality for millions of couples in the world. This book is raising awareness about female fertility and reproductivity potential for women after their mid-thirties. It also reveals some of the "hidden truths" and misconceptions about IVF and demystifies information provided by the press and media. A similar book with details of the latest IVF trends, facts and experiences from the patients' perspective has never been published. The first part of the book is a chronicle of the author's experiences as an IVF patient, where she shares medical information, facts, experience and lessons learned during IVF treatments. In the second part of the book the author is offering valuable advice, recommendations, and tools, including tips on how to save money for IVF. This is also a patient's story about the emotional impact of IVF. The book is unique in presenting a serious family and marriage crisis throughout battles with infertility and how the journey through the IVF drastically affected the couple's relationship. It is also a story of a personal life crisis that the female patient was going through. The author describes her own turmoil when she decided to end IVF (IVF closure) after many years of living in the "IVF bubble," when she faced not only the cruel fact that she will never be able to have more children, but also experienced a career failure, financial difficulties and her husband being ready to leave her due to the inability to have a big family together. This book is also a relevant resource for medical practitioners to better understand patients' physical and emotional needs and improve the service in IVF clinics. Quote from the book: "My greatest hope is that reading this book leads to positive outcomes for as many women and couples as possible!"

The Knowledge That Leads To Wholeness

The Knowledge that Leads to Wholeness is the first book to specifically illustrate how the major Gnostic myths underlie Jungs theory of individuation. It is a compelling and in-depth examination of a life-changing journey that begins with the author discovering the forgotten secrets of the Gnostics. These secrets are gradually unveiled as the author and his loyal dog, Gold, are initiated, each in their own way, to put the ancient knowledge into practice. Dr. Lloyd explores the esoteric side of Carl Jung and reveals the connections between Jungs pivotal theory of individuation, i.e. the journey to wholeness, and the powerful, visionary myths told by the pioneers of the psyche, the Gnostics. He details what happens to a person who is on the road to wholeness, how the person will change, and how a new divine-human identity will be born into the world as a result of undertaking this transformational odyssey. -KIRKUS DISCOVERIES Review - Did Carl Jungs principles of psychology have Gnostic origins? A Marine Corps Ph.D. explores the complex mystical possibilities. Lloyd splits his expansive hypothesis of the souls journey into three vital steps (preparation, undertaking and re-birth) in discovering Jungs path to wholeness. He credits Jung with saving his life by way of unlocking his imagination (the souls voice) and spiritual mindset. The author familiarizes readers with the Gnostic religious movement, practitioners of an intensely spiritual inner exploration, who believed that humans are not bound to experiences solely of the body and mind. His literary gift to Jung is these comparative ruminations, all exuding a great amount of imagination and provocative thought. Running parallel to the authors spiritually progressive interests is his adventuresome interaction with and imaginal dog named Gold, who discovers two seeds of knowledge. The first rediscovers the spark of divine life, whereby humans are one and the same with God, and the second amplifies Jungs individuation theory that the human ego must relate to the unconscious mind to achieve psychological health. Unerringly throughout his narrative, Lloyd grafts Gnostic myths with Jungian wisdom. He focuses on the psychic creator and king of the material world Demiurge in association with second-century Gnostic visionary Valentinus, whose tragic myth of Sophia tells of a restless female deity who travels outside of herself searching for wholeness rather than looking inward, and her ultimate repentance. Comparatively, Jung also writes of humans who restrict themselves to their five senses rather than tapping into the core strength of their imaginative visions where uncanny experiences might spring forth. As Lloyd (and Gold) survey principles of higher consciousness, the self, the transformative life-cycle process, and the concluding Syrian lyrical myth Song of the Pearl as they are juxtaposed against Jungs theories, the author also cites Gnostic challenges to contemporary religious beliefs as in the re-imagined genesis of Jesus of Nazareth. Most interestingly, Lloyd inserts Jung into his narrative to quiz his arbiters as to whether they have the desire to discover the mystery of their existence. Unfiltered hokum for some, but those who are open to it will find much-needed nourishment and direction for their searching souls. --Nielsen Business Media, 770 Broadway, New York, NY 10003 646-654-7277 fax 646-654-4706 [email protected] Visit

The Fourth Edition of Knobil & Neill continues to serve as a reference aid for research, to provide the historical context to current research, and most importantly as an aid for graduate teaching on a broad range of topics in human and comparative reproduction. In the decade since the publication of the last edition, the study of reproductive physiology has undergone monumental changes. Chief among these advances are in the areas of stem cell development, signaling pathways, the role of inflammation in the regulatory processes in the various tissues, and the integration of new animal models which have led to a greater understanding of human disease. The new edition synthesizes all of this new information at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels of organization and present modern physiology a more understandable and comparative context. The Fourth Edition has been extensively revised, reflecting new fundamental advancements in this rapidly advancing field. Provides a common language for researchers across the fields of physiology, endocrinology, and biology to discuss their understanding of reproduction. Saves academic researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on reproductive physiology, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles.
